    Individual guest reviews

    • I loved the location and the hotel front. Also friendly staff at every turn and the convenient restaurant within the same building, a 'second cup' coffee bar is just off of the lobby. Rooms are comfortable and clean, the breakfast is good.

      Furniture is worn and dated.

    • Great location on whyte ave and street noise as well. Hotel management is super friendly and lobby is warm. Breakfast is best taken out in one of nearby restaurants and the front desk is friendly, courteous and helpful.

      S decor is dated and the Whyte avenue crowds can become noisy on weekend evenings. Cel phone would have been a big help.

    • Excellent friendly staff cleanliness location shopping/entertainment, underground valet parking was a nice touch and our stay included the continental breakfast and a beverage. The service was amazing and beds were comfortable. The wines were tasty there were plenty of options.

      Business centre was really inadequate, stores were closed and atmosphere was spot on and was very busy on weekend evenings. Price did not become adjusted, room temp was far to warm change on controls and the Irish pub 2 doors down, was a bit noisy at night.
